‘Queer’ Asia is a network of queer identifying scholars, academics, activists, artists, and performers. It is a platform for inter-Asia collaboration, dialogue, and research on issues affecting people who self-identify as LGBTQ+ or belong to other non-normative sexualities and gender identities in Asia or Asian diasporas and beyond.
With over six years of run-up and annual events, our 2022 edition of ‘Queer’ Asia is centred around the theme ‘Survival’. Given the continuing pandemic our fifth annual film festival asks about queer survival in the face of multiple and systemic oppressions.
‘Queer’ Asia 2022 kicked off with a special collaboration with AACT Community (in Toronto) in May 2022 at the Toronto International Film Festival followed by our festival in the UK, spanning four cities – Brighton, London, Oxford, and Warwick.
Stay tuned for more exciting details and remain updated about our events!
